Science Fiction & Fantasy Bookclub #29

How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe

For February’s meeting, we’re reading How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu. In a second-rate universe, a time-travel machine repairman revisits his childhood and oh, by the way, has to rescue his father. For those who like their science fiction experimental, witty, and quite meta, this is the book to read.

Join us for discussion of our current book as well as helping decide our next selection.

This is what you missed at our last bookclub meeting:

For January’s meeting we read Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey , who passed away recently. The first book in her most famous series, The Dragonriders of Pern, we found it a little too young-adult (though before the term was put to fiction often) for most in the group. Valuable in being able to see the source of inspiration for many other authors, but not really to our taste, for the most part.
